Just recently Filofax has bought up Letts Diaries. Letts is a very old company that made Diaries, notebooks, pens and all sorts of other stationery. And using the idea of both a notebook and a Filofax organiser, Filofax have come up with a totally new look, and cheap, A5 size notebook.
I only own one A5 Filofax organiser because I actually find that size too big and clunky, and I only own the one I do because W.H.Smiths had it for sale at a give away price, and one never knows when one might need an A5 size Filofax.
I do however always have on the go and carry around with me, a cheap oldexercise book. I know it's virtually A5 size, but it's light and easy to shove in my bag. I use this for anything and everything that I need to jot down, from when a new television series is about to come on tele,to marking down my weight for that day, to quickly writing any reminders down. Basically there is no order in the exercise book. It'ssimple me using up page after page of notes that need never be thrown away, but the important ones are transferred to where they belong on a weekly basis.
Now! Getting back to this new A5 size notebook Filofax have just released.
They call it a clip book and this translucent one comes in pink or purple. Click below to see more images and colours.
Translucent l Leather Look
They also do it in a leather look, in blue, black, and white. The white would make a great notebook to plan a wedding.
At £15 - £18 (UK) they are virtually giving it away.
What it doesn't come with is dividers. But as with the paper, one can always buy dividers separately, also one has to remember that this has been designed for a notebook, not a Filofax organiser.
But me being me. I fished out the dividers that have been laying doing nothing for years in my A5 Filofax organiser, and stuck them in my clip book.
This looks so much nicer than carrying around a tatty exercise book and yet is the same size (virtually) and barely weighs any more. I really do love it.
